You might first notice it when your dog needs help getting into or out of the car. It might be when he just doesn't feel like going for a walk anymore. It's hard to watch your pal in pain.
Dog Arthritis, also called osteoarthritis, occurs with old age and is often genetic. While it can't be cured, it can be managed.
The key to managing your dog's pain is identifying the problem. Once you've noticed the problem it's always a good idea to get an initial assessment by your vet.
The top Signs of Arthritis are:
- Stiffness or Limping
- Decreased activity or lethargy
- Difficulty getting up or down
- Loss of playful attitude
- Lack of interest in exercise
- Loss of range of motion
